    I also think it is overpriced! It’s an issue I have with the entire Caribbean; items are bought for next to nothing from manufacturers, shipping cost, duty paid or other cost incurred to get them to the stores, does not justify the exorbitant markups that are put on items. X

    Wade Forde, it’s not only in Barbados, the entire Caribbean is suffering from over pricing. X

    Liz Richards, we don’t need to go as far as manufacturing, all that is needed is for the Islands to set up Price Commissions to cover everything imported and curb these retailers from ripping off the consumers.

    I am aware of some Islands having weekly guide prices for various food items, but there has to be control over other items. It hurts me to see the prices being charged for items purchased for next to nothing out of the region, especially when bought in bulk and the insane prices locals are being asked to pay. X

    It’s a very warm climate so before using that piece; just say ” Let it all hang out”!

    This is another waste of court time by a magistrate who, in my opinion, is badly in need of proper training.
    In any case, I always try to avoid Cave Shepherd, a department store that |I believe is out of date.

    I could understand why she sold the bra. It costs just as much as what she gets for pay. While I must state categorically that I’m against stealing of any kind and this lady didn’t born with a bra so she doesn’t need one, I’m of the opinion that this so-called caring society didn’t need to embarrass one of its own for something so small. The issue could have been handled better. Come on, don’t degrade our women and mothers like this. This paper didn’t even need to publish this either.

    I am appalled by some of the comments. As far as I know stealing is against the law.
